One of the great joys of having kids is reading to them. But unfortunately babies and adults have different levels of comprehensions. Books made for babies are of course not very stimulating for adults.
But at 18 months, Ayden seems to enjoy listening to any random stuff I am reading. There is a lot research which shows children benefit from listening to language. So I have been reading my real estate course to Ayden at bedtime but when I am too tired for real estate course, then I read fiction. I use my Kindle to read in dark. It is perfect as dim glow doesn’t bother Ayden or get him excited at night.
Here are some of the books that are easy to read to toddler. Many of these are free or very cheap.

The best way to look for cheap or free books for Kindle is by filtering for books that are rated 4 stars or more and sort by low to high price. Or you can use this affiliate link.
Of course, you can read any book though toddlers start to understand sentences now. So you probably don’t want to read anything too scary or R-rated.
